Film Review: Mas Carnaza (1997)

Mas_Carnaza-1997-film-2

SYNOPSIS:

Short extreme film directed by Sergio Blasco about a jealous disgruntled ex boyfriend

REVIEW:

This 45 minute splatter film directed by Sergio Blasco ranks more interest for its racy cover than for the film experience itself. Spanish spoken and without subtitles, I was hoping that its visuals might carry the story a bit more than it ended up delivering. Though if you find yourself nodding off during a gore film such as I … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

A struggling group of paranormal investigators get the chance of their careers when offered the opportunity to debunk – or prove – the allegedly supernatural events surrounding an abandoned “haunted” mansion.

REVIEW:

“Ruh Roh” Shaggy, this looks very familiar. Director Spencer Parsons’ latest film, Saturday Morning Mystery begins as a live action parody – or homage, perhaps – of the Scooby-Doo cartoons. The film makers celebrate this comparison to its greatest benefit.

They … Continue reading
